No need to apologize. I was just trying to help get it right and hope I didn't step on anyone's toes. I was wondering why the files were listed 3 times, and that explains it. Uploading to the archive is nice because it does all the work for the lossy files (as long as you don't check/uncheck the box to not allow it to derive lossy copies). After you uploaded, it would have created the metadata from your text file, after which you would have edited to make the tracks match the song names since your text file didn't have matching song names & tracks; e.g., it couldn't figure out Help/Slip/Franklin's = d4t02-4. Maybe you unknowingly disabled the deriver or maybe it was just overloaded and hadn't gotten to your files yet (although it usually only takes an hour or so).

Thanks again for sharing a great recording of a wonderful show!

the first time i upped it i created the folder as the LMA instructs you to do, then log to the ftp and that part was fine, so i proceeded to load the flacs as is. the wav md5's are primarily in the fileset cause of the SBE Free Status. i hashed those as soon as i finished tracking the show and sbeok in cdwav? when was the last time you seen that CW? lol

anyhow i uploaded all the files and it failed deriving, it failed loading. some error fubar'd the work and when i logged back into the ftp to see what was up, the folder(furthur2010-12-31_2011-01-01 yada yada yada)was GONE. it did allow me to create a new directory right there in ftp and even change the permissions on it to 777 after i finished but that didnt work either. a day or so later and still no result in the listings, so i went into flash mode and must have overlooked the derive button/box there(if its there, i wouldnt be able to tell you yet) and this time around it obviously only uploaded the lossless flac so the following day after no stream/download only i decided to take charge and upload a transcode from flac to mp3 CBR/320kbps & ogg level 10 to force the stream. i hadnt realized that the LMA does it for you if its done right. anyways thanks charlie, much appreciated and to answer the question in email, foobars live show tagger? i just started using it as i discovered it yesterday so my next entry will be flawless to say the very least. anyhow thanks for the feedback, the support, the friendship & happy 2011 to you and yours...

Hey TJ - you actually did a pretty darn good job for your first upload...just one thing tripped you up. Right after you hit "Submit" after putting in all the show info (venue, source, etc.) you went back in and tried to edit the show again. That interrupted the derive process, which creates all the mp3/ogg files and the flash player.

In the future, if you see something like that happen again - where it takes more than an hour to create the derivatives - drop us a line at etree@archive.org and we'll fix things up for ya!
